Teoxane is a hyaluronic acid filler designed to treat the effects of aging in the specific areas around the mouth, eyes, cheeks, and neck. This non-surgical treatment adds volume to facial features and improves the quality of the skin.
Restore your skin’s luminosity, tone, and hydration alongside volume with Aria DermSpa’s range of Teoxane fillers. Perfect for reestablishing your skin’s softness and vitality, Teoxane dermal fillers revitalize facial skin while delivering exceptional results. They are ideal for expression lines and restoring underlying facial volume to the cheeks, temples, chin, and neck.
The Aging Process
We all strive to keep our facial skin looking youthful for as long as possible. Unfortunately, the aging process is not kind in this area. Your skin will undergo several changes that affect thickness, texture, and volume. Facial aging combines with the effects of time, environment, and genetics on soft and hard skin tissue. This process causes a loss of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin affecting skin pliability and support.
The Teoxane Solution
Here at Aria DermSpa, Teoxane’s family of fillers are useful to restore volume to our patients looking for a suitable anti-aging regimen. For them, Teoxane injections provide precise artistic facial sculpting. Dr. Donofrio strongly believes in the beautiful results of this incredible product.
Because fillers are all formulated differently to meet different needs, Teoxane is included in our menu of dermal fillers. Think of these injection choices like a palette for the artist to select the most appropriate products for facial enhancements. We offer Teoxane’s RHA 2, RHA 3, and RHA 4 for highly mobile areas, hydration, and lip enhancement.
How Teoxane Works
Teoxane dermal fillers restore tired facial features, eliminating wrinkles, fine lines, dull skin tone, and lost volume. Unlike other fillers, Teoxane fillers work continuously to prevent these issues in the years that follow, supplementing the body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid.
Teoxane fillers are injections that can be used in all facial areas and the neck. The hyaluronic acid content within each dosage is released gradually into the body where it is absorbed and bonds with existing collagen and other hyaluronic acid molecules.
During the natural aging process, our bodies produce less collagen and hyaluronic acid. In turn, we lose youthful skin glow and radiance. Facial areas that continuously move due to expressions like smiling, laughing, and squinting, typically create lines and wrinkles etched into the skin.
Teoxane’s family of fillers is explicitly designed to preserve the natural attributes of hyaluronic acid. They maintain smooth skin by ensuring the dynamic parts of your face enjoy their full effect.
Teoxane RHA 2
Teoxane fillers have a range of hyaluronic acid content, so your experienced injector can best select the concentration that works for the specific area. RHA range delivers hyaluronic acid support of a more stretchable type that responds better to facial movement. The higher the number, the firmer the filler. This range allows for natural results and improvement from the unnatural outcomes of past non-surgical treatments.
RHA 2 helps patients with moderate lines and wrinkles like smile and laugh lines caused by muscle movement and expressions. It also helps with forehead wrinkles, and it can be combined with BOTOX® for a complete rejuvenation of the upper face. Under-eyes, crow’s feet, and vertical lines around the lips and mouth (smokers’ lines) are also prime targets.
Treatment areas include:
- Forehead and Brow
- Suborbital (Under-eye Hollows)
- Eyes (Crow’s Feet)
- Barcode (Between Mouth and Nose)
Teoxane RHA 3
RHA 3 is designed to resolve unwanted vertical lip lines and nasolabial folds by filling these areas where wrinkles may be deeply etched.
Treatment areas include:
- Lip corners
- Nasolabial Folds
Teoxane RHA 4
This facial filler adds volume in extended areas to enhance facial beauty. It is generally used to fill out areas that may have become gaunt looking over time. These common treatment areas include:
Results from Teoxane injections are visible immediately after treatment and improve over the following two to four weeks. One of the key benefits of our Teoxane dermal filler treatments is the duration of their correction. While many facial fillers are limited to a few months, Teoxane products typically last anywhere from a year to a year and a half. During your consultation, Dr. Donofrio will discuss your options and what you can expect from each treatment.
